I should give that one a go! Have you read the Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde?

Natalia Heaney | 13 comments I majored in literature both in college (the last two years of high school here), and at university. So... I took a LONG break from reading the classics because I'd overdosed on them!

However, there are a lot of well-known authors whose work I've never read, and now I'm going back to the older books.

I did a whole six-month study unit just on Hamlet. Not that I can remember much now!

Dracula is from the Victorian era. It is *definitely* a classic book. :)

fireside reads (firesidereads) | 5 comments Honestly my favorite "classic" book would have to be a series. Anne Of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

I grew up reading her stories and fell in love with the characters. I connected with Anne so much. This is my most treasured series too lol

Fell in love with both the 1934 ( Dawn O'Day ) the 1985 ( Megan Follows) films

Yeah, it’s like a psychological haunting with a Gothic vibe.

dolly (cryptided) | 12 comments i love anything by the bronte sisters, especially Wuthering Heights and Agnes Grey

i also loved the three musketeers and i read dracula twice in one month once. i just finished my first read of it and immediately started over i loved it so much lol

and i'm big into daphne du maurier right now. rebecca is definitely my favorite so far though.

and idk if this counts as a classic, it was written in 1940s i think? but I Capture the Castle was amazing.

oh and The Scarlet Pimpernel i read in high school and fell in love with!! probably my favorite school assigned read

i didn't mean to mention so many i just really love classics ajdvkdna

Nahari Lippman | 4 comments One of the all time classics is All Quiet on the Western Front It may be set in WWI but its message about warfare is timeless.


message 17: by Marti (new)

Marti The best classic I've read is The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. It's one of the first books I read as a kid and one of the reasons why I fell in love with reading.

Victoria (florens) | 2 comments I absolutely love Jane Eyre! And I am slightly obsessed with the BBC mini TV-series adaptation of the book as well, have seen it more times than I care to admit haha.
